Q: Whenever my partner and I order Chinese or Asian takeaway, we get large bags of free shrimp chips/prawn crackers. I don't like wasting food, so I have been keeping them fresh in the refrigerator, but they're starting to pile up. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can use them for cooking?

Could they be mashed/ground and made into a crust or be used as breadcrumbs? Any help would be great!

Editor: The first thought that came to mind was fried chicken. I can taste the crispy, crunchy exterior right now! Or maybe you double-down on the seafood flavor and use the crushed chips as a binder in shrimp cakes or another fish cake? How about replacing the breadcrumb topping on a baked mac and cheese with the shrimp chips? This stockpile of shrimp chips seems like a grand opportunity for experimentation.

Perhaps The Kitchn readers have some ideas to share?

Next question?
